KV Entering Tracy In Indy 500
April 17, 2010 | 9:09 P.M. EST
2003 CART champion Tracy will drive the No. 15 GEICO-KV Racing Technology car.
Tracy, 41, finished second in 2002 at Indianapolis to Helio Castroneves and finished ninth last year. He will attempt to make his seventh Indianapolis 500 start this year. This year's edition of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" opens Saturday, May 15.
"I want to thank (co-owners) Kevin Kalkhoven and Jimmy Vasser of KVRT and GEICO for the opportunity to return to the world's biggest auto race," Tracy said. "I have won races and championships at the top level during my racing career, but what I'm missing is a win at Indy. I feel I have some unfinished business at the Brickyard and, with the support of GEICO and an outstanding team like KV Racing Technology, I feel good about our chances at this year's 500."
KV will grow to a four-car team at Indianapolis, as Tracy joins the team's IZOD IndyCar Series regulars, E.J. Viso, Mario Moraes and Takuma Sato.
